    So I've been deciding for a awhile now whether or not to buy one and I can't decide. It seems like the reviews are split 50/50. Some say it's good, other say it's terrible. Target has it for $130 online and I think that's tempting. Will it be money well spent or a waste?

    Depends. You got about 8 feet of clear floor space between your TV and where you play? If so, then sure. If not. don't waste the money

    I have more than enough room. I know the games out for it arent very good but being able to use my voice for netflix sounds cool. I suck at decision making.

    Not really a lot for it. But the concept is really cool.

    The voice command for Mass Effect is really cool. Not for the conversation part (novel but takes too long), but the battle commands are great and are a cool alternative to the Pause/Play action from the other games.

    They just added the feature to Skyrim too i guess, but I haven't tried it.

    The thing I'm most excited about (but haven't played yet) is Tiger Woods 13. Seems like a golf game is the perfect use of kinect. Anyone played it yet?

    Just wait until the next console when it will be included as part of it, instead of sold separately or in a bundle.

    I'm surprised with the general perception around here, you think I have room for a Kinect to fully function. I can barely fit the entire Rock Band ensemble in my room.

    Why do you need the whole thing set up? Who are you playing it with, your roommates?

    What, you don't think a party animal like myself would host a Rock Band party without the stage kit, do you?
